Today I ran into an issue which I could not figure out for quite a while. I was trying to redirect a url to another url using RewriteRule. It was supposed to be a pretty straightforward redirect which made it even more annoying than complicated ones.

This did do a 301 redirect as I wanted but query string passed so my redirected url looked like:  http://www.example.com/?foo=bar

RewriteRule ^testpage\.php
